A blog full of information on the use of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (known commonly as NLP) in therapy, coaching, sales, marketing, relationships, and everyday life
I received this question via email today from one of our clients: "If the subconscious mind cannot reason, question, or reject the command you give it through hypnosis, why can't we suggest to it through hypnosis that we make $1,000,000 in 12 months and then expect the subconscious mind to show me the ways? It seems that my subconscious mind is always sabotaging my goals, even when I use hypnosis to suggest the outcome."
This is a fantastic question, and I'm so happy this client asked it, because I believe the answer can help so many people.
Let's first start by clearing up a myth:Read the rest of this entry »
I often get people who ask me the question, "What do I do when NLP doesn't work?"
This seems to me like a trick question, because I have never found a time when NLP doesn't work, as long as the client wants the result and doesn't give up on the process.
But there are often times when an NLP technique (or two or four) doesn't work. Sometimes, it even seems as if your entire NLP strategy doesn't work.
So what do you do? Unfortunately, many Practitioners just give up. Here are four strategies that will help you always get the result with NLP.Read the rest of this entry »
Have you ever wondered how NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming, AKA: The Lost User Manual fo the Mind) came about?
You've probably heard the phrase, "NLP was not invented, but rather modeled."
"What does that even mean?"Read the rest of this entry »
One of the biggest issues we have facing us in the modern world is that people have been conditioned to believe that health is not a personal responsibility. Society blames health on our DNA, our upbringing, our environment, our government (or lack of government), evil corporations... anything BUT the personal choices we have made and the personal choices we continue make each and every day.
People have been conditioned to believe that health primarily comes in a bottle full of chemicals, reactively given to you only through the permission of a medical system that has assumed far more power than it can competently handle. THIS is primarily why we are in the position of health we are in today as a society...Read the rest of this entry »
So many people say you cannot spot a narcissist or someone with a personality disorder until it's too late, but then they will tell you about the string of narcissists they have been in relationships with.
This is a clue.
While they may not consciously recognize the narcissist at the onset of the relationship the fact they keep "falling" into relationships with them is no accident.
I used to run this pattern myself with BPDs (people with Borderline Personality Disorder. Similar to narcissism, but more toxic). There is definitely something subconscious going on, because "normal" people are not attracted to narcissists.Read the rest of this entry »
Most people assume he's a dirty menace. He's kicked out in the middle of the night because he doesn't have enough money for a cup of coffee.
They don't realize the impossible downward spiral he's stuck in that put him there. They don't know that, even though he is homeless, he cleans and grooms himself every day in a locked Del Taco bathroom and washes his clothes at the laundromat with the precious little money he has to keep his sanity so he doesn't slip down the rabbit hole of becoming a "bum." They don't realize the support of his family and friends has run out (or at least he thinks it has).
They don't know him and they don't want to. Would you want to know him?Read the rest of this entry »
There has been a lot of talk lately about “the five second rule,” the subject of a book and media campaign by Mel Robbins.
The premise is that your brain is your enemy when it comes to success and achievement, so you have to "trick it" to be good at anything.
The author explains how procrastination and apathy caused her life to spiral out of control – a failing marriage, a career she hated, etc. – and the only thing that turned it around and “fixed” her life was counting down backward from five and taking action the second she gets to zero.

Have you ever forgotten someone’s name?
Of course, you have… it’s one of the most common (and embarrassing) situations.
What about a phone number? Or a to-do item on your task list?
If you’re like most people, you think you have a less-than-perfect memory.
In fact, you’re wrong... Research has shown for decades that the subconscious mind absorbs and records at an astonishing rate (over 2,000,000 bits of information per second) that your conscious mind (which processes only 126 bits per second) isn’t even aware of.Read the rest of this entry »
Regardless of where you live in the world, you are probably surrounded by people who are full of limiting beliefs about wealth.
The biggest challenge in trying to change this limiting mindset is a strong societal belief that we have to a) trade our time for money and b) work hard to earn money.
Many people wrongly believe that it’s impossible to become wealthy unless you’re given an unfair advantage (like an inheritance or a high-dollar education, even though 60% of the Forbes 400 richest people were born in poverty and/or are dropouts), you’re “lucky,” greedy, or even worse... a criminal.Read the rest of this entry »
Twenty-three years ago, at just 19 years old, I was homeless.
I wasn’t on drugs or alcoholic. I was just an angry, misguided kid with problems I didn’t know how to handle.
I spent the better part of six months sleeping on a park bench in Tustin Meadows Park in Tustin, California, USA.
I am now homeless again. But not in the way you might think…This time, things are a little different.Read the rest of this entry »
